520    This open access book is a consolidation of lessons learnt
       and experiences gathered from our efforts to utilise Earth
       observation (EO) science and applications to address 
       environmental challenges in the Hindu Kush Himalayan 
       region. It includes a complete package of knowledge on 
       service life cycles including multi-disciplinary topics 
       and practically tested applications for the HKH. It 
       comprises 19 chapters drawing from a decades worth of 
       experience gleaned over the course of our implementation 
       of SERVIR-HKH a joint initiative of NASA, USAID, and 
       ICIMOD to build capacity on using EO and geospatial 
       technology for effective decision making in the region. 
       The book highlights SERVIRs approaches to the design and 
       delivery of information services in agriculture and food 
       security; land cover and land use change, and ecosystems; 
       water resources and hydro-climatic disasters; and weather 
       and climate services. It also touches upon 
       multidisciplinary topics such as service planning; gender 
       integration; user engagement; capacity building; 
       communication; and monitoring, evaluation, and learning. 
       We hope that this book will be a good reference document 
       for professionals and practitioners working in remote 
       sensing, geographic information systems, regional and 
       spatial sciences, climate change, ecosystems, and 
       environmental analysis. Furthermore, we are hopeful that 
       policymakers, academics, and other informed audiences 
       working in sustainable development and evaluation beyond 
       the wider SERVIR network and well as within it will 
       greatly benefit from what we share here on our 
       applications, case studies, and documentation across cross
       -cutting topics. .
